A gentleman who solves the most challenging cases

 A young woman who keeps her own secrets close

 Will the threat of danger draw them closer together?

 Or will he let his painful past keep him from seeing his future?

Robert Shelby was beaten, betrayed, and held prisoner for months. Now, a year after his rescue, he loses himself in his work. A gifted private investigator, he takes cases of missing persons and missing goods. He turns a blind eye to smugglers who ply their trade close to his estate in Sussex, leaving the matter to the law. He also seeks to ignore the constable’s inquisitive daughter, despite his attraction to her.

Diana Ashley keeps watch over her brother as he works with the smugglers on the River Arun. She made a promise to her late mother to see to his safety and her father, the constable, cannot know of her brother’s involvement or her concealment of it. She is tired of her duty, and longs to convince her brother to give up the dangerous work. One night Robert finds her on the bluff near his home, but despite his probing questions she won’t reveal the true reason for her nightly vigils.

There is more than smuggling going on in Sussex, and when her brother is accused of a horrible crime she goes to Robert for help clearing his name. Mutual attraction swiftly turns to passion, and she suspects that her heart is in more danger than she herself had ever been while keeping an eye on her brother. Robert is drawn to her sweetness, beauty, and quick mind, but believes she is better off without a scarred man like him.

Can Robert make room in his heart for her?

Or will past pain and betrayal drive him to deny the love they share? 

When single mom Chloe Butler comes face to face with the guy who broke her heart, she’s determined not to fall for him again. But the irresistible dream of forever, and her sweet, meddling family, may have other plans for her in the second book in this Small-Town Romantic Comedy Series from Bestselling Author JoMarie DeGioia

The girl who quit dreaming long ago.

The guy who doesn’t know how close he came to forever.

Will the love they share bring them together?

Or will this dream stay a secret?

Chloe Butler keeps busy running her café and raising her little boy. She fell in love when she was too young to know any better and, after a head-spinning week with the guy of her dreams, she was crushed by his betrayal. She came home to Cloud Canyon with more than heartache to remember her first love. She was pregnant with his son.

Nick Stockton comes to Cloud Canyon to take a bigger role in his family’s high-end construction company. He has the training and the drive, but until now he’s never been given the chance. Six years ago he spent one incredible week falling hard for Chloe Butler, but managed to blow it big time. He won’t screw this up.

When he walks into the café, he sees the one woman he can never get out of his mind. Chloe is determined to never fall for him again, but Nick finds out about their son and wants a chance at forever with them. It will take more than drive and ambition to prove he can be everything they need.

Chloe is falling for Nick again, and her family of meddlesome, well-meaning Butlers keeps pushing them together. She still wants him, but can she trust him with her heart? And what about their son?

Is Nick ready to commit to the dream she’s kept secret all these years?
